Christmas crafts: Felt food

Did you see the awesome kitchen that Carrie refurbished for Ethan? How cool is that! Carrie told me about her project and mentioned wanting to get him some food for his kitchen, so I set out to make him some felt foods. Perfect crafts for watching movies and relaxing in the evening.

I started with these fun sprinkle donuts from Carrie’s 2010 Sewing project calendar (pattern also available here), which is an awesome set of daily sewing projects.

I also found a lot of patterns online for felt foods, so I made a mix of things.  I was just blown away by the awesome crafters who share their patterns online! These felt orange slices followed this pattern. I made the blue woven place mat out of strips of blue felt in my stash using some fusible interfacing to set them and added a simple fabric background.

Sandwich (lettuce, tomato, cheese, veggie bologna OR the classic PB&J) and chips from here. These took the longest to make, but I was happy how they came out.

And of course some potato chips (or the healthier banana chip)…

I found so many fun patterns online but ran out of time. Here are some patterns I had wanted to try, but didn’t have time for:

Pumpkin pie, grapes, broccoli and cauliflower

Cake stand and chocolate box

Lollipops

Pancakes! (they even look yummy)

Now I need a visit to Ethan’s kitchen!

    Cute! I love seeing the sets of felt food that people decide to make pulled together from disparate sources, everyone’s set is different!
